The day of the Antiques & Primitives Goods Show was picture perfect, warm, blue skies, low humidity, what more could one ask for? It was just a beautiful day to scout around for the best antiques and primitives.
I had the opportunity to help my good friend Maria in her booth
“Primitives by Maria”
Penny also came down from Maine to help out in Maria’s booth.
I must say all 3 of us had a good time during the 2 days that we spent at the Walker Homestead.
Penny has a shop in Mechanic Falls, ME called
The Falls Country Gift Shoppe
If you’re on facebook she also has a fan page under the same name.
In Brookline, NH (right over the MA border) you can visit Maria & John over at
I’m going to try to include as many links as I can in the following pictures.
I’ll start by showing Maria’s booth. It was all done up in an Americana theme.
Look how adorable these children are all dressed up in their prairie dresses!

Doreen & her husband are all dressed up for the occasion!
Dirk Dishop from the
“Early Homestead Woodshop”
had some nice pieces of his handcrafted reproduction furniture and his now infamous cement sculpture pieces. Wow! he was very busy selling out of these pieces!
In Dirks’ booth were some of Rachel Engel’s wonderful and unique folk art dolls
“Too Far Gone Primitives”
This piece on the door came home with me.
One of Rachel’s pieces is headed off with a happy customer!
Beautiful redware and antiques everywhere you looked!
